Saghro Massif trek 6 days

Jbel Saghro 6 Days / 5 Nights

Saghro Massif trek- 6 days
The actions of the wind and water throughout the years have shaped the landscape exposing steep needle-shaped rocks. The population is limited to two tribal confederations, the Ait Atta and Ait Sedrat. The greater part of these tribes today still maintain a nomadic life, moving their herds in summer to the High Atlas, for green pastures and water springs.
